Elope to Cornwall

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


Cornwall is a fabulous place to get away from all of the commitments and stresses of everyday life, what could be better when you want to elope?

An elopement is an intimate wedding experience designed to be whatever you want it to be; whether it’s just yourselves or if you decide to bring a few close friends or family members with you, Cornwall has everything to offer to make your special day perfect.

What you need to do

It’s really easy, just 4 simple steps

Book your venue – with many venues across Cornwall specialising in smaller, romantic elopement getaways, there is a range of accommodation available from luxury, full-service hotels to peaceful, intimate cottages. Here in Cornwall we have something to suit all tastes and budgets, and if it’s just yourselves “running away” then often our Venue hosts will be delighted to be your witnesses as well!

Book your ceremony – contact our team on 0300 1234 181 (option 3) to make your elopement booking.

Book your Notice of Marriage appointment – this would be at your local Registration Office (anywhere in England or Wales), once complete and the 28-day waiting period has elapsed your Marriage Authorities will be issued directly to us.
Come and enjoy your time in Cornwall!

Whether you are planning ahead or having the whirlwind run away elopement, Cornwall Registration and Celebratory Services have it covered to make your elopement dreams a reality.
